United for Our Rights

Himiza Social Justice through the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) together with Civic Education Teachers’ Association (CETA) and Actions for Democracy and Local Governance (ADLG) implemented the EU project ‘United for Our Rights’ which aimed at strengthening local structures for a better fight against corruption in Geita Region, Tanzania.
The project achieved three results which are: (1) empowerment of local CSOs through increased capacity and efficiency to actively monitor and improve the management of public finances; (2) empowerment of local communities through increased awareness and understanding of public finances through exchange—platforms with local CSOs for participation in decision making processes on public finances and (3) empowerment of LGAs through capacity building and improved cooperation between local CSOs and LGAs in order to promote accountability and transparency in the public finance system at local and national level.

SUCCESS: The project trained 360 local leaders and created awareness of 13640 local community members in Geita Region on the fight against corruption, transparency, accountability and public expenditure tracking. The empowered community members are frequently reporting acts of corruptions done by local leaders from their respective areas to relevant authorities.
